Historic Medical Achievement in Tripura Healthcare Sector

Tripura successfully conducted its first kidney transplant surgery on Monday, marking a significant milestone in the state’s healthcare sector. The intricate six-and-a-half-hour procedure took place at AGMC and GBP Hospital in Agartala, in collaboration with Shija Hospital from Imphal, renowned for its expertise in kidney transplants. This achievement positions Tripura as the third state in the region, following Assam and Manipur, to accomplish this complex surgical procedure.

Collaborative Effort and Surgical Team

The groundbreaking surgery was led by surgeon Dr. Somorendro P., Dr. Mahele, and nephrologist Dr. Guliver from the 13-member surgical team from Manipur. They worked alongside local doctors including Dr. Bijit Lodh, Dr. Manas Gope, Dr. Mukut Debnath, and Dr. Somoresh Paul. The team successfully transplanted a kidney from Munna Saha Sutradhar to her 20-year-old son, Subham Sutradhar, showcasing the collaborative effort and expertise involved.

Celebration and Acknowledgments

In a press meet following the surgery, GBP Hospital’s Medical Superintendent, Sankar Chakraborty, and the medical team celebrated the procedure as a landmark achievement for Tripura’s healthcare sector. They attributed this success to Chief Minister Manik Saha’s vision of establishing Tripura as a medical hub.

Chief Minister Saha’s proactive initiative led to a partnership with Shija Hospital, facilitating the surgery at a nominal cost and providing training to local medical professionals to ensure they can independently perform such procedures in the future. Dr. Kanak Chowdhury, Deputy Medical Superintendent of GBP Hospital, along with the medical team, expressed their gratitude to Chief Minister Saha for his dedicated efforts, which they believe were instrumental in achieving this historic medical feat.

Chief Minister’s Support and Vision

Chief Minister Saha personally visited AGMC and GBP Hospital the day before the surgery to inspect the arrangements. He met with the medical team, the patient, and the donor to offer his support and encouragement towards advancing healthcare capabilities in Tripura. His vision and leadership have been pivotal in transforming Tripura’s healthcare landscape, making high-quality medical procedures accessible to the state’s residents.

Future Prospects and Medical Training

Under Chief Minister Saha’s initiative, Tripura has forged a partnership with Shija Hospital not only to facilitate the surgery at a nominal cost but also to provide comprehensive training to local medical professionals. This strategic collaboration ensures that local doctors are equipped with the necessary skills to independently conduct such complex surgeries in the future, paving the way for Tripura to emerge as a leading healthcare hub in the region.

Conclusion

The successful kidney transplant marks a new era in Tripura’s healthcare sector, showcasing the state’s commitment to advancing medical capabilities and providing high-quality healthcare to its residents. This historic achievement is a testament to the collaborative efforts of the medical teams, the visionary leadership of Chief Minister Manik Saha, and the strategic partnership with Shija Hospital, setting a robust framework for future medical advancements in Tripura.
